Finn Hopson: The Downs
14 September 2014 - 30 April 2015
Finn Hopson: The Downs

Your last chance to see this extremely popular exhibition of local photographer Finn Hopson's photographs of the Downs.

Finn says: "The eastern end of the South Downs isn’t known for its trees and woodland, but they are an essential part of the character of this landscape, outlining the shapes of fields and villages, providing a sense of scale to open downland, silhouetting against morning mists and throwing shadows across the land as the sun rises and sets."

Alanna McIntyre: Rethreading My Life
A Brighton Fringe Event

Alanna McIntyre will be reading from her memoir: Rethreading my Life, a brave and fiercely honest account of how she coped with her grief at her husband's suicide and the long road to healing and recovery.  Alanna says: 'I have tried to capture the emotions that I felt and how I coped in an honest account of bereavement.  It is written in lyrical style; poetry is my favourite medium, it deals with a dark subject in an uplifting manner. It shows how through structuring my day I have built a routine that allows me to be grounded in my garden and nature."

Alanna is supported by music played by Ben Blake and with readings by Jo.
Illumination by Woodstar

Illumination by Woodstar

Brighton wood sculptor Dave Gourlay of Woodstar, has created a series of architectural lights displaying the translucence of different wood veneers, which form a permanent exhibition at the cafe. 

The pendant Trinity shades are adjustable.  When shut down they give sculptural mood lighting, when opened up they allow a practical quantity of direct light to suffuse the room.  Woodstar offer a range of pendant and wall mounted lampshades.  Alternatively you can specify a unique light, or combination of lights which reflect the proportions, palette and feel of your particular scheme.

Woodstar is a Brighton based company, specialising in shaping wood into curves, circles
and spheres.  They take their inspiration from classical geometry and natural forms.

If you would like to view further examples of their work (all displayed at Redroaster
are for sale) please go to the Woodstar website .

Opening Times:
7.00 am to 7.00pm Monday to Saturday
8.00am to 6.30pm on Sunday
